Currently Based:

I live in Milan, where I work as illustrator for advertising, books, magazines, physical and digital media. Inspired by futurism, constructivism and mid-century modern, my illustrations are made of sharp shapes and harmonious curves, expressive letterforms, solid colors, clear-cut shadows, stripped-down palettes. Overlays and negative space are allies I often rely on.
